Here’s hoping everybody enjoyed the beautiful weekend weather. It’s getting so exciting watching our New Orleans
Saints – do we see another Super Bowl in the future?????

Today all of the faculty/staff here at CTK are attending the Archdiocesan Day of Reflection. This is a requirement
by the Archiodese of New Orleans and a chance for all of us to grow in our spiritual education so that we can better
guide our students.

Once again, the prizes have been ordered for all those students who sold candy. Now it’s just a matter of getting
the prizes in so that we can get them sent home. We are planning to draw for the big prizes at a school assembly
so that all students will get to witness the announcements of the winners.

For those of you who missed attending the All Saints Mass last Wednesday, you missed a special Mass. Students
who participated did an awesome job. A special thanks goes out to Mrs. Bouvier for putting the Mass together
and to Mrs. Oustalet for putting the costumes together for such a beautiful Mass.

A big thank you to all who participated in the CTK All Day Give Back Event at Reginelli’s. We had a really nice
turnout and those proceeds always come back to us in beneficial ways.

The staff/faculty here at CTK appreciate parent involvement in HASA, so it was somewhat of a disappointment to
see so few parents at last Thursday’s meeting. Please try to make plans to attend the next HASA meeting. Thanks
again to HASA officers Erica Adams and Kristin Bohling for all that they do.

Parents: You are invited to the first “Parents, Pastries, and the Principal” event on Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. I want to give you the opportunity to socialize with other parents, chat with me about what’s on your mind, and throw out ideas to better things here at CTK. This will be very informal and I hope to see a lot of you on Thursday. Also, please consider joining us for Mass at 9:00 a.m. Your children love to see you at Mass.

Please plan to join us on Friday, November 10, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. for a special ceremony honoring our veterans. This is always such a touching event and one that is important for our students to share in.

The Thanksgiving Food Drive is coming up soon. Please donate so that those less fortunate will have the opportunity to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.

Also, the HASA Turkey Bingo is set for Saturday, November 11, 2017.  Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and bingo will begin at 7:00 p.m. There will be
lots of fun, a parade of prizes, 50/50, concessions for purchase, and a raffle.  Anyone who would like to volunteer to help set up for Turkey Bingo on  Friday night, November 10, or work on Saturday, November 11 – and get in your HASA volunteer hours – please email HASA is also looking for donations to the Parade of Prizes. Make plans to attend!

The Kindergarten students had a blast at the Pumpkin Patch, from the bus ride to the pumpkin picking!
